Worth a trip to troll around in Fisherman’s Bay and learn about lobstering! You will see one lighthouse and hear a few tales about the Area! Great for young and old.

Hi Jesse, thanks for the feedback. Our policy (for the safety of the guests) is that we allow holding the lobsters when they are banded (so that no one gets a finger....or some other body part...crushed!). We obviously can't throw the lobsters back with bands...More

Great tour, interesting, excellent guides and stories about the work. Good service, Weather was bad in the morning, and they were willing to cancel until the very end. Highly recommended.

Hello, yes we do have a bathroom on the boat for emergencies. We do encourage everyone to use the bathrooms at our pier before we depart as they are a little more roomy!
